Chris Evanich, S&C Electric, Microgrid Knowledge
In this week’s Industry Perspectives, Chris Evanich, manager of microgrids at S&C Electric, describes how a rise in microgrid deployment is disrupting today’s power industry.
Last month, Microgrid Knowledge and the International District Energy Association (IDEA) hosted the Microgrid 2017 Conference in Boston. The sold-out event drew some 450 attendees — triple the total from a year earlier — including electric utility representatives, campus power operators, regulators, developers, financiers, consultants, and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firms.
This diverse group is helping reinforce the impact microgrids have already had in the energy and reliability space, and it is providing a strong indication of future integration.
